PanARMENIAN.Net – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, commenting on France’s initiatives to recognize the independence of the Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh), said Thursday, December 10 that French President Emmanuel Macron “has not learned learn politics”, RIA Novosti reports.
Both the National Assembly and the Senate of France have supported resolutions calling on the country’s government to recognize the independence of Karabakh. French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, however, has spoken out against such a move.
“Leadership qualities are important here. You have no right to stand up and say that this (Karabakh- Ed.) is a state, based on a decision from your National Assembly. Even [Armenian Prime Minister Nikol] Pashinyan does not dare to do this, but you [Macron – Ed.) are trying to. Macron hasn’t learned politics. Perhaps he will be angry with me, but truth needs to be spoken,” Erdogan said.
